Looks like Loveland pulled out a close upset win over the Aves. Was not there so I can't comment on the play of the game. Any game reviews?

first half sycamore outplayed loveland. loveland had one goal from Brizzi off a set piece about 30 yards out that went in off a deflection. Beachy also scored a pk in the first half.
second half loveland sort of settled back int heir own half and sycamore outplayed or argueably dominated loveland the second half with them hanging back. In the end though sycamore really didnt have many GOOD scoring oppurtunities.
Somebody needs to control the parent from sycamore. both times i've seen him he has been kicked out and gone after the refs after the game. He is an embarrassment to sycamore's coaches, players, and fans.

it seemed that the refs were favoring loveland...every call seemed to go in their favor. also, in the last few minutes of the game, sycamore scored but the goal was taken back because the loveland keeper "had possession", although it did not appear that way. :shrug:

The goal was not called back because the goalie had possesion it was becuase the keeper was obviosly fouled by both sycamore attackers

Its ashame, and to be quite honest, somewhat amusing to watch adults act the way they do about a "game". Now don't get me wrong, I know emotions run wild in any competition, but the adults have to show some responsibility and leadership. It starts with the coaching staff. If they allow themselves to become so emotionally and mentally overwhelmed with a game that they lose control of themselves, odds are so follows the players and the crowd. I heard the antics of the sycamore sideline was a little bit of an embarrassment.

On a side note, when will parents ever learn that the referee does NOT decide the game??? The referee makes calls, whether good or not, that determine where the game goes from there. If a goal is scored from a set piece after a call is made, to the chagrin of the parents/coaches/players, it is not the referee's fault that the ball went in the goal!! He/she did not place the ball in the goal and call it a score! We, as officials, are the easiest scapegoats for parents/coaches/players because we are the innocent bystander at the time. We are not the product of parenting or coaching, so the blame has to fall on someone, right? So we officials become the reason.
If I had a nickel for every time a parent says something to me as I walk out of a game, I would be rich and not care about what is said on these message boards. But instead, I'm not rich, and I like to make my point.
If it is our fault for the result of a match, shouldn't it also be bad coaching or bad parenting for the player/team to allow more goals than the other team?? Isn't it bad parenting to not make the kid understand that you win some and lose some, and that it won't always be fair in life?? Isn't it also bad parenting for the parent to make comments to the referee after the game by not showing respect to the authority of the game??
I do not have children, but if God blesses me with at least one that becomes an athlete, I will be sure to teach my child to respect the game and its authorities, as well making them understand that things will not always go his/her way.
Just something to think about. For you players out there, feel free to show this to your parents. I am going to post this on a new thread, too, so you may see it twice.

The job of the official is to mediate the game and keep it under control. However, when an official does decide the game, such as making a very close call that say gives the other team a PK, the official has not done his job and has effected the outcome of the game. Therefore the ref would not be an "innocent bystander."
